re: Newly two-thirds of U.S. young adults unaware 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust - ExtraGravy
[quote]Then there are the Jewish Folk over in Europe who lived there for centuries with no problems until Hitler came around.[/quote] "no problems"- read a book sometime about Jewish history in Europe from medieval times onward. It was brutal all over, but especially in Eastern Europe and Russia....

re: Hold old is the oldest virgin that you know and would you help a lady out if she was one? - ExtraGravy
I used to work with a lady who was in her mid 30s. Kind of a shy schoolmarm type. She was cute, too. But she said her parents had been bad alcoholics and her dad was abusive, the home was split up, it was pretty bad with her mom, etc etc. And she said she just never wanted to get married or be with ...

re: Favorite college class - ExtraGravy
Early Roman Empire. It wasn't the subject matter per se, although that was fairly interesting. It was that I had never worked so hard in my life, and was able to get an A in the end. Going to college was a huge adjustment and this was the first time, after a few setbacks, that I understood the kind ...

What areas of Louisiana were damaged by the storm? - ExtraGravy
Obviously Lake Charles was devastated. But I'm not clear on what other parts of the state suffered a lot of damage. Or, what path the high winds took. I looked online but don't see a clear explainer. For example- Shreveport seems not to have been hard hit- is that right? Monroe and Ruston seem to...

re: Parents of the OT: Unjust scolding - ExtraGravy
[quote]Have you ever scolded your children for no other reason than you were simply in a bad mood or they were just being harmlessly annoying? Did you apologize afterwards, or did you let it ride and give them a one-way ticket to adult therapy?[/quote] 1- like everyone I have done this. 2- I ap...

re: The DB Cooper case refuses to die. - ExtraGravy
interesting. The case is a lot of fun to speculate but none of the money was ever spent, and this part from the wikipedia page is hard to get around: [quote]"We originally thought Cooper was an experienced jumper, perhaps even a paratrooper," said Special Agent Larry Carr, leader of the investiga...

re: Louisiana revokes permit of defiant BBQ restaurant for refusing to require masks - ExtraGravy
they basically begged the guy to comply and he made it clear he had no interest in following the rules. If you don't like the law, you have the option of fighting it in court. But you can't just say "ya know what, this law bothers me so I'll just ignore it- what are you gonna do about it?" When you ...

re: Do you get packages you didn't order from Amazon? - ExtraGravy
[quote]Make sure you plant the seeds when you get em[/quote] LOL that is what made me realize about the "scam" thing. We have never gotten seeds from China. But I just read about those and that's where I learned that "brushing scams" were a thing. I can't believe people are dumb enough to plant a...

Do you get packages you didn't order from Amazon? - ExtraGravy
Over the last year we have gotten several packages we didn't order from Amazon. It has been random things- once, a set of (pretty decent) kitchen knives. Or household goods like a handheld vacuum cleaner. At times, other stuff I can't remember. Our first thought was some old relative who had once se...

re: Why do people dip fine cut over long cut? - ExtraGravy
I was going to say something snarky about dipping but I'll just say this: guys, please stop. You are exposing yourself to risk of a disfiguring and miserable death, for basically zero benefit. You want your face ripped apart from cancer surgeries before you're 40? https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data...

re: Is there collectively a worse machine than the printer? - ExtraGravy
[quote]Don’t forget the extortionately expensive cost of ink[/quote] yeah that's the oldest trick in their book man. Printers are cheap, they are more or less free. Why? Because they make so much money after the fact on toner and other materials- and for the big ones, service contracts. I kno...

re: Retina detachment - ExtraGravy
You may not actually have a detached retina. Take it easy today and call your eye doctor to get checked out. The office won't be open but they all have an answering service. If you're in New Orleans I can give you a couple of names to call if you don't know one to call....

re: Louisiana may now rest easy- the torts have been reformed - ExtraGravy
[quote]Also, this is the largest % rate reduction in the last 4 rate reductions. 9.3% I believe. Is it just coincidence that it comes after the tort reform bill passed? I ask that because the other occurred because people were driving less, but now the state is opening up again and people are drivin...

re: Covid19 deaths down 27% from last Monday. (Ignore the troll extragravy) - ExtraGravy
That's a misuse or misunderstanding of the facts. Infections and deaths are not uniform across the US, so the "nationwide death number" is not informative. Deaths as well as cases are increasing at a terrible rate in Texas, Florida, and Arizona (Houston and Miami are particularly terrible). It's ...
